Carnival of Space #97 has been done on a shoestring budget over at the Cheap Astronomy blog site.
Cheap Astronomy is a site all about exploring the universe with your eyes, a pair of binoculars or one of those out-of-the box department store telescopes. Everything on the site is aimed at people who want to do real astronomy for $300 or less.
The contributions to this week's carnival feature Mars quite a bit. There are also some fascinating pieces on space telescopes, Titan, the space station and space shuttle. The Simostronomy contribution this week is the interview with Martin Ratcliffe.
Enjoy the ride. Admission is free. It doesn't get any cheaper than that!
